Back in Business

February 22nd, 2024 | Posted by Rich in Blog Post - (0 Comments)

JRV Realty of North Georgia is back in business!  I’ve been on leave for about a year now while I concentrated on some personal business including selling my own horse farm. Now I’m ready to get back into helping people achieve their real estate objectives.  To that end, JRV Realty is expanding from a one person operation to the addition of two highly qualified real estate professionals – both of whom are active horse people with extensive backgrounds in the real estate industry.

I’m very pleased to announce that Jim and Lisa Sylvia are joining the brokerage. They are owners of a horse farm in Talking Rock/Pickens County having moved from Free Home/Cherokee County.   They have extensive real estate knowledge and can be reached at 770-401-8333, LisaSylvia3@gmail.com, or through their website  https://sylviateam.com.

Whether  you’re buying or selling contact the Sylvia Team to see how they can help you attain your goals.

Just listed my favorite horse property in north Georgia. It’s located in Talking Rock between Jasper and Ellijay. Located in a quiet setting convenient to Highway 515 and all its retail establishments, restaurants, and Piedmont Mountainside Hospital, this farm sits on 3/4 miles of Talking Rock Creek; has 30 acres of established pastures, and 30 wooded acres with trails. The home is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath Barndominium built in 1999 and recently updated with quartz counter tops and SPC flooring throughout. If you’re looking for a place in north Georgia for your horses and to enjoy the outdoors, take a look at this one. Click here for pictures and details.

Back on the Job

The Juni Fisher concert in late April was a big success. Juni did her normal excellent performance in front of a packed house. As we say here, she never disappoints. We raised a little more than $5,000 which we have already commenced to distribute to several trailheads in north Georgia. The last few months I’ve been assisting one of our daughters sell her home and buying another. That culminated this past Friday with back to back Closings in the morning and a move-in in the afternoon. Thankfully both Closings went very smoothly. A big thank you to Hartmanlaw who handled both for us. They do a great job there.

As a result I’m once again looking for listings. I’ll be posting a new one very shortly that is an excellent horse property, especially for someone who wants lots of room for the animals and the space to truly enjoy the out doors in a quiet setting. I love horse properties and enjoy working with people in acquiring/selling theirs.

We are proud to be a sponsor of the upcoming Juni Fisher Concert raising funds for our public horse trails in North Georgia. If you’re a trail rider located in North Georgia come enjoy some wonderful entertainment while making a contribution to the maintenance and improvement of our trails.

J&B Farm Sold!

March 3rd, 2022 | Posted by Rich in Blog Post - (0 Comments)

Just closed on the J&B Farm in Lyerly. The excited new owner bought the farm, equipment, and livestock. It was the fastest close I’ve experienced since I’ve been selling farms. From having a firm agreement to the actual Closing totaled 6 days!

I am now focused on helping a couple of clients find their dream farms. Both are in search of a 100+ acre property, mostly in pasture, located in north Georgia no more than 1.5 hours from the Atlanta area. Both are cash buyers. Got any ideas or possibilities? Contact me at 770-289-7272.

Are you dreaming of simpler times and yearning to get away from the congestion and turmoil of our cities? Did your grandfather have a farm when you were young and you recall those days with much fondness? New on the market, the J&B Farm is a remarkable 235+/- acre cattle and hay production farm in northwest Georgia. The current owners fulfilled their dreams when they moved from the Atlanta suburbs in 2013. Since then, they have made this acreage a shining example of stewardship employing modern methods of land conservation. Check out this special farm by clicking here for details.
